Dragons fullback Zane Kirchner has joined the Bristol Bears on an emergency one-month loan deal.
Kirchner, who has played at fullback, wing, centre and flyhalf for the Newport-based region, will help bolster the injury-plagued English Premiership club, who are without Charles Piutau, Luke Daniels and Matt Protheroe.
The 34-year-old joined the Dragons from European champions Leinster in 2017, having previously played for the Bulls.
Kirchner earned 31 Test caps for the Boks, with his last appearance coming against Japan in the 2015 World Cup.
